A former Leeds star with a connection in the southern hemisphere has urged Hollywood star Russell Crowe to get involved with the club.
Crowe created headlines around the world this week when he responded to a fan's tweet about ownership of Leeds, the club he has supported since the 70s.
Ex-Leeds striker Michael Bridges used his twitter page to contact Crowe, and urge him to get involved.
Crowe is a native of New Zealand and a co-owner of Australian rugby league team South Sydney Rabbitohs.
Bridges is still only 36 but has retired from football after an injury struck career. He had a four year association with A-League side Newcastle Jets at the end of his career.
He played for Leeds between 1999 and 2004 but after a superb breakthrough season, nearly his entire time at the club was ruined by injury.
